    False friend lists needed...

    Hi there, all!
    I'm trying to compile an international collection of false friends with English.
    I already have a whole bunch of German examples from a German-speaking friend of mine, but would appreciate input from other teachers from all over the world.
    Do me a favour - sit down and write me a list of the worst examples you hear in your classrooms. If possible, can you put them into 3 columns, namely Original word, False friend and foreign translation, Correct English word.
    For example: aktuell; actual(tatsächlich); current
    You can post answers here or to trixie33@live.com
    That would really be fantastic!
    Thanks, y'all!!
    Trixie
